My first Louise Penny. I enjoyed this somewhat more for the place, the Eastern Townships fictional village of Three Pines than for all the characters and the mystery. I got a but jumbled in the characters, there were a great many all introduced at once and I often could not keep track of who was saying or doing what so, if there were copious clues, I missed them. Even as I cam to the end, I still missed alot of what was happening and I felt like things were left unsaid that maybe I was supposed to understand? Okay, I did see at least one part. Still, the writing was good and I will continue on with her Inspector Gamache and see where he takes me.

Her first Inspector Gamache book. All her Gamache books are great, but best read chronologically (the characters grow with time), so this is where to start. ( )

A little disappointing. A few chapters, 7 - 8 I think, "a lotta yaddah", didn't do much for me, though I'm sure the sleuths here would disagree. The final scene was a "thriller". Interesting, but Gamache wasn't the first to begin the big reveal which occurs in the penultimate chapter. The last chapter was a group-wide discussion of motives, means, and opportunity. ( )

I listened to the book on audio and loved it! I was already invested in the characters and the wonderful community of Three Pines as I had read many of the other books in the series. These books are more about the very human characters, with their quirks and flaws, rather than the actual solving of crimes, which have a lot of underlying psychological aspects to them. I also appreciated the humor of the characters, with many subtle, clever one-liners. ( )

Have read the whole series, but I was heading to Canada and would be visiting Knowlton (aka Three Pines) so I felt it would be appropriate to re-read the first book. It was a good decision! ( )

The beauty of Louise Penny’s auspicious debut novel, STILL LIFE, is that it’s composed entirely of grace notes, all related to the central mystery of who shot an arrow into the heart of Miss Jane Neal,...

She also felt a stirring that suggested she didn't actually like her son. Love, yes. Well, probably. But like?
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table. (From the third verse of 'Herman Melville' by W. H. Auden, quoted by Jane Neal in chapter one)
Every year the hunters shot cows and horses and family pets and each other. And, unbelievably, they sometimes shot themselves, perhaps in a psychotic episode where they mistook themselves for dinner. It was a wise person who knew that some hunters -- not all, but some -- found it challenging to distinguish a pine from a partridge from a person. (Chapter 1)
[Gamache is talking with Myrna Landers]

'The funny thing about murder is that the act is often committed decades before the actual action. Something happens, and it leads, inexorably, to death many years later. A bad seed is planted. It's like those old horror films from the Hammer studios, of the monster, not running, never running, but walking without pause, without thought or mercy, toward its victim. Murder is often like that. It starts way far off.' (chapter 7)
"There are four things that lead to wisdom. They are four sentences we learn to say, and mean."

I don't know.

I need help.

I'm sorry.

I was wrong.
